Project overview

The Perelandra Deluxe Boost / Overdrive is a recreation of the Xotic BB Preamp, a flexible tone machine that lets you go from a clean boost to a nice smooth overdrive with a 3-band EQ to shape the tone and three clipping options.

This is an expanded version of the original Perelandra, developed based on direct traces of several BB variants. Modifications have been incorporated from the “Comp” and “MB” (mid boost) custom shop models. Each of these modifications can be set to a position that mimics the stock circuit, so while you now have additional tone-shaping tools available, the original tone of the BB Preamp is unaffected.

The Perelandra Deluxe does not replace the original Perelandra, which is a simpler build with fewer controls and components. The original Perelandra also has the option to build the Bass BB Preamp variant which the Deluxe does not cover.
